World erupts in resounding criticism over Trump climate pact exit

The deal itself, which sets out the goal of limiting emissions of planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions, is binding under worldwide law.

In the meantime, Washington may opt to withdraw from all climate negotiations and simply flout the commitments made under the previous administration. He offered to re-enter the agreement if new terms can be reached.

A group of leaders from USA cities, states and corporations are working to negotiate with the United Nations to combat climate change in the United States after the federal government began the process of withdrawing from the Paris agreement.

"Five years ago, the idea of either China or India stopping - or even slowing - coal use was considered an insurmountable hurdle", Climate Analytics physicist, Bill Hare, said.

"We will also continue to reach out to the USA federal government to discuss this matter of critical importance for all humankind, and to identify areas of shared interest for collaboration, including on emissions reductions", Trudeau said.

John Sterman, an MIT researcher who works to analyze climate change scenarios, and Andrew Jones, a researcher with the think tank Climate Interactive, told the Washington Post that their analysis shows that the current country level pledges under the Paris agreement would reduce the planet's warming by the year 2100 down from 4.2 degrees Celsius (7.56 degrees Fahreheit) to 3.3 degrees Celsius (5.94 degrees Fahrenheit), or almost a full degree. The EU is planning to reinforce existing partner relations and find new allies from among the world's biggest economies as well as countries most vulnerable to climate change to vigorously move forward with implementing the Paris Agreement.

Trump announced on Thusday that the United States will withdraw from the Paris Agreement, making it one of of three countries not to follow it. With strong words of global leadership to protect our planet in all the main party manifestos, all United Kingdom political parties are set on broadly the right course, at least at a high level. But Trump also pledged to "ensure that the United States remains the world leader on environmental issues". China now has the opportunity to fill this role as well. These agreements are still in place, though they may be up for discussion during Modi's visit to the White House later this month. Expressing similar views, Power Minister Piyush Goyal in a statement said, "India under [Prime Minister Narendra] Shri Modi's leadership has taken up renewable energy as an article of faith and is steadfast on its Paris commitments, irrespective of what others do". Heads of business and capital have already stated their dissatisfaction with Trump's decision.
